Admissions Policy Consultation

The Omnia Learning Trust: Consultation on proposed admission arrangements for Sires Hill Primary Academy 2023/24 is now closed.


There were no comments made to the Trust during the consultation period. Therefore the Trustees of the Omnia Learning Trust, the Directions of Sires Hill Primary Academy will adopt the following arrangements for admission to the school from September 2023.


If the school is oversubscribed, after the admission of pupils with an Education, Health and Care plan naming the school, the proposed priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the criteria set out below, in priority order:


  1. Children who are “looked after” (LAC) by a Local Authority (LA) within the meaning of Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989 at the time of their application, and all “previously looked after” children (PLAC) [see ‘Previously Looked After Children’ footnote below] including those who appear to Omnia Learning Trust to have been in state care outside England (IAPLAC) and ceased to be in state care having been adopted. Evidence of the previously looked after status and/or the adoption will be requested.
  2. Priority will next be given to the children of staff who have been recruited to fill a skill-shortage area.
  3. Priority will next be given to the siblings of pupils attending the school at the time the application is received [where an older sibling is in year 6 siblings will not be prioritised under this criterion].
  4. Any other children


If in categories 2-4 above a tie-break is necessary to determine which child is admitted, the child living closest to the school will be given priority for admission. Distance is measured from the child’s home to the front gates of the school in a straight line.


The consultation ran from the 30th of August 2022 to the 22nd of October 2022,
